In transition to Christmas spirit, I want to answer the Daily Post’s weekly challenge: gathering. I think this would be nice before I delve into talking about communities and joyful merriment (is that a word? not sure, yet). Even though this picture took place in Paris (and it’s the end of En France category), the steps of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre is one of my favorite places/memories. I remember walking by this harpist playing in the streets: obviously didn’t earn much money, but was incredibly skilled. Tons of people gathered to listen to him play and instead of cramming their schedule with tours of Sacre Coeur, they just sat there and listened. And it was really nice to watch.
